God With Us

There was no way I could suspect that God had other plans for me. (Elizabeth) (Biography)

Today’s Readings: All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel,

which means “God is with us.”
When Joseph awoke,
he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him
and took his wife into his home. (Matthew 1)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, today we focus on St. Joseph in the Gospel. The just man who did not understand Your Plan but responded to the Angel with trust and did what the Lord commanded him. Lord, You have a plan for all of us, one we often do not understand and that often takes a turn we never expected. Lord help us to respond to Your inspirations- it may well not be instructions in a dream for most of us but You speak to us constantly through Your Word, through the Sacraments, and in the people and circumstances in our lives. You are Emmanuel- God with us!
